Some models of the Samsung Galaxy S4 have already been officially updated with the latest version of Android Kitkat. To see if your model is one of them, do the following:

  • Open your phone's Settings application.
  • Tap the More tab, located in the upper right-hand corner of your screen.
  • Scroll down and tap About device.
  • Tap Software update.
  • Tap Update.

If you have an official update, your phone will now download and install it. If you do not have an official update available on your specific Samsung Galaxy S4 model but you still want to update your phone to Kitkat, you will need to flash a ROM. Flashing a ROM overwrites your phone's current software with custom software by developers to give your phone new features or newer software than what's officially available. This process may brick, or permanently turn off, your device. Keeping that in mind, you can follow the instructions at this link to learn how to flash your Samsung Galaxy S4 with a Kitkat ROM (like this one).
